On Friday in Evansville, 15-year-old Ashlyn Jones planted an "Equality Tree" at the Civic Center.
Jones planted the tree as part of her Silver Award Project for the Girl Scouts.
We had to do fundraisers for the money, we had to go get a plaque, and we had to decide what type of tree we wanted," Jones told 44News Friday. "We wanted a tree that would turn red in the fall because everyone bleeds red blood."
Jones says she hopes the tree will not only inspire a change in the Tri-State but hopefully around the world.
Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke was just one of several city officials on hand for the tree dedication Friday.
